I Love This Little Car! — This is the perfect little car. She was super inexpensive to purchase, even brand new, and very inexpensive to maintain. I've had her for 9 years now, and she shows no signs of slowing down. I plan on passing her down to my daughter :)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Inexpensive to purchase and maintain

Cons: small vehicle, overall, without a lot of power

Great Low Maintenance, Spacious, Reliable Car With Great Fuel Mileage — Easy to drive, very low maintenance, and spacious for a compact car. Extremely fuel efficient. Overall the Chevy Cobalt is a safe, sturdy car to drive and perfect for families or any individual especially those looking for a car that won't cost much at all in maintenance, gas or repairs. Highly recommended!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great fuel mileage, comfortable, spacious back seats, large trunk, easily handling, low maintenance, reliable

Cons: FWD isn't great in snow or ice.

I Like It When It Works — I love the car. It has had a lot of problems since I've bought it. I also don't get to drive it much due to being gone all the time. When I am able to drive it it's an amazing feeling.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The whistle of that SC

Cons: The amount of parts that break.

Overall Satisfied With It. — The performance is more than you would suspect with 250hp, 15lbs of boost and drilled and slotted rotors. Of course this is after the stage 2 kit. But thats a must have. Gas mileage is decreased with the power adder but overall a good car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Nobody suspects a cobalt to be quick

Cons: Every 16 year old chick drives a base cobalt.

I Would Say It's Worth What You Pay But Steep Competition Would Say Otherwise. — Not very well built. I've replaced the radiator twice due to it being torn from underneath. Good gas mileage but small fuel tank. Fairly agile through traffic due to its inherent smallness. Smooth shifting. Decent looking. Decent interior space for a compact.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas Mileage

Cons: Build Quality

2005 Cobalt Base 5 Speed. — I like my car because it's cheap to run, is a lot of fun to drive, and is very practical for a small car. I bought my car used for a very small price and it has been a great car for me so far and I hope it stays that way for years to come.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun, cheap and economical.  Join the ECOTEC family.

Cons: Plastic, plastic and more plastic on the inside.

I love driving it. It has plenty of pep.
